This past weekend,I went to the local move theater to see THE RAID 2:BERANDAL,for needless to say the words “kickass”,”very cool”,”good”,”great”,”excellent”,and “awesome” just can not describe this all-too-incredible film,for Gareth Evans fully establishes himself as a genre filmmaker to be reckoned with,that Asian action cinema is once again established as a genre cinema to be reckoned with(and never under denied),and lead star Iwo Uwais establishes himself as the man who’ll easily take Tony Jaa’s place once Jaa reaches the big time(with the likes of FAST AND FURIOUS 7 and the Dolph Lundgren films A MAN WILL RISE and SKIN TRADE all slowly coming up). In fact,I’m not even going to give a full review of the film,since it’ll only give away too much and the best way to see the film is to just go out and see it for yourself,since it fully restored my faith in mainstream films(and films in general). For better yet,I’ll just give the links to a few video clips below…
And if you’re eagerly hungry for a full review of THE RAID 2,check out Mark Tinta’s excellent movie blog…
That’s all I’ll say about THE RAID 2,for once you’ve seen it you’ll not only be ready for THE RAID 3 but you’ll also wonder(as much as I still am) how the heck did this extremely violent(to the hilt) film easily get away with a R rating.
BTW: I’m also stoked and very amazed at how many people went to my blog’s feature on the Ultimate Warrior’s passing without any advertisement from me. Truly amazing.
Speaking of wrestling,I could care less about Nancy Grace and her Ultimate Warrior coverage,since she’s a media sensationalist(ala Gloria Allred,Ann Coulter,Al Sharpton,Jane Velez Mitchell,Howard Stern,and Geraldo Rivera) and sensationalists aren’t worth getting boiled up over,anyway.
